Shayal Devi
Thursday, August 21, 2014

THE three men captured in connection with the robbery of a foreign exchange outlet in Nadi were not beaten by the police, according to West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia.

"One of the three men is in hospital at the moment," she said.

"He sustained injuries while trying to escape from police."

Ms Ragigia said the police had cornered the three suspects near Tagaqe Village and one suspect tried to evade the police by running into the forest near the village.

"Along the way, he sustained some injuries. He has been kept under observation at this point."

Meanwhile, Health Ministry media liaison officer Sunil Chandra could only confirm the man was brought in from Nadi to Lautoka Hospital on Sunday.

"He is still in hospital," Mr Chandra said, adding the condition of the patient could not be disclosed.
